OP  2/27/13 1:01:44 PM#1
I really dont know where I can take it and who can actually create a game out of it. I got some amazing ideas of an rpg game which could be an mmo with some changes and I got a nice concept that most of the games lack these days which lures you inside the game. Are there any places I can take my ideas and show people if they are interested in doing stuff based on it?

First place to start is the patent office. Trust me, any company you go to will try to steal your idea sooner than they try to hire you.

Coming up with an idea is an infinitessimally small part of a games development, they are also ten a penny.

OP  2/27/13 1:13:41 PM#4

Yeah that is for sure the next thing I'll do once I actually guarantee I can make something out of it.

I showed samples of my stuff to my close friends and people say that it could be something really big, not just an rpg but also series of books and I'd rather have nice lore like warhammer or lord of the rings in a game than no story based, mindlessly pig slashing game.

The problem is I am not living in a place with game companies, not in UK or US.

Listen, your friends will tell you those things because they don't want to hurt you. But your idea is worthless. I haven't seen it, but I see you: you don't understand the first thing about games' development, so your ideas in game development is completely worthless.

You can't patent an idea, as I understand it, without plans or prototype. I could be wrong, hardly an expert on patent law.

I would suggest publication (required for statement of copyright, established first ownership in the event of a dispute, plus a dated copyright claim, not hard, "©2013 YourName" is sufficient) Unforunately, you also can't copyright an idea (only a specific sequence of words, published document or image, for example).

Beyond the basics; consult legal advice, not gamers.

In that case, ignore everything previous. Copyright and similar IP law is entirely jurisdictional, where it exists at all.

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

you have no idea about what I have created and my friends, I asked it particularly to those who would be objective about it... Also its not just  a few ideas about a game, its everything, I even got the illustrations of characters to cities both on 3d and concept art, dont mistake me for a person that just made up something, I have been working on this for quite a time

I recently applied for patents and it is not an idea I should have mentioned that I actually have everything about the game but nothing coded, so think of it as the material and the script of a movie

I just hope I can make use of this, mmo market is already going bad in my opinon, I am thinking of losing the mmo part of the game if it gets the chance to work

Harsh but probably true.

 Some people seem to be of the opinion that MMOs lack, 'ideas', and thats bullshit. Plenty of people with much more experience in the industry then you have ideas about what would make a great game/MMO.  Whats lacking is the people who can actually deliever on this, i.e. programming,coding, and synergy between game systems.

If your serious about pursuing anything then look into improving your skills in the areas I menioned so you could approach someone at a convention with a simple demo.  It might work out but expect to start at the bottom and move your way up in a company till you can then reveal your big ideas.

Noone, in any industry, trusts anyone with good intentions and if you get offened by anyone here pointing out the obvious then your clearly not thick skinned enough to pursue this.

This looks like a job for....The Riviera Kid!

OP I got a suggestion for you: If you have a good idea, I mean a really good idea look up something like http://openrpgmaker.sourceforge.net/ , work on a prototype of your game on there squeezing as much of the mechanics as you can in there and using it start either recruiting people to turn it into a full blown game or making contacts to get it made, after you have a working prototype you could also give the Extra Credits guys a e-mail see what they think, they're generally very helpful with advice and maybe even improvements you could make.

 

If it is your dream to make your RPG do not stop easily, work on it on your own as best you can using dev tools like RPG maker (or its variations) and get out there with it (after you patent everything in it of course), get it know, god knows maybe one day you'll bring us a RPG as big as the Ultima or Mass Effect series :).

 

Addendum: Just as a side note, I never gave up on my dream and right now I am on the fast track to getting a PhD in physics, something no one in my entire extended family can claim ^^ and it is my dream to work in the field so I will never give up.

I have a couple of friends (artists) who have designed, developed, created and even printed their own card game, wasted on it years of their lives and all their savings - only to end up with the game nobody ever bought because they had no idea what's that thing "marketing" is and how it all works.

 

Hell, I have a dear to my own heart design of my own game, which, one day, I will surely try to turn into a prototype, then pre-alpha, then, gods willing, may be, fingers crossed, some kind of a beta, if I'll find an artist I can kidnap and keep in my basement while he'll be working on game's art resources (because I have a snowball's chance in hell to be able to afford a real game artist otherwise). And I'm a pretty good programmer myself, so at least from this side it's covered.

 

But precisely because I'm kind of sort of working in the area, or at least in the general vicinity, I have a slight idea of the iterations of game's development. That's why my own design is kept in the dark closet of my heart.

 

People who ask those kinds of questions on the forum have no chances, period. It's better to stop them now while they haven't yet wasted significant portions of their lives.

To that guy who said the idea is worthless, this isnt true.  I posted something very similair, well, a lon post with the actual design concept, some years ago.  I knew that without coding ability or anything similair i woulndt be able to make it.

Though, a few months ago i got over the fact that i had trouble understanding how programming worked in highschool(many years back) i started to teach myself some c#, c++.  I became obsessed and am currently coding a single player 2d pc game (id like to move into 3d soon) with all the progression concepts of my mmo ideas in mind.

My point is , that a gamer can have good ideas, and another thing i have figured out is that any idea is possible if you are able to code.  But the time required  to make a full game or mmorpg is a lot.  Im working alone on this game and it moves slow, but i learn in that time while developing it.

But if you do have the idea, and you want to make it, you need to make it,and i doubt (I dontknow much of how team development works) that a group of programmers are going to code a game based off of your idea, if theyre doing all the work.

Talking about conventions, there is, apparrently, a game developers conference going to be held March 25-29. I don't really know the details of it since I don't follow conventions and the like. And I think registration is stil open till March the 20(?).

The about page is here-

http://www.gdconf.com/aboutgdc/

 It's to bad you don't have a playable demo but I think you could still learn a few things at a event like this.

 

Another website you may be interested in is here-

 

http://www.fastgraph.com/makegames/contents.html

 

It is kinda a 'get started' or 'how to' page about game developing.

 

And finally, here is a magazine about game developing

http://gdmag.com/

 

I only just googled around a little bit, so I don't know how relieable this stuff will be. Wish you luck though!

If you have lore you could write a book and get it published.

You could pick a game engine like Unity but there are loads to choose from and learn how to use it. Then maybe use kickstarter to get some funding once you have something put together to show your ideas.

It may be an awesome idea but its now up to you to do something with it. You may fail, you may succeed, you will have set backs, you will need to be determined to see it through to have any chance of success.

You will also need to ask for advice but i'd suggest finding a community of budding indie game developers rather than this forum where your more likely to be trolled than helped. Here is a list of forums you could look through.

You will need to have realistic goals and learn how to set them. I'd say forget about making an mmo until you have some game development experience under your belt.

Good luck anyway.

That is the exact thing I have been thinking lately, It has a huge lore like warhammer or lord of the rings, that is why I feel like it could be promising in the hands of a programmer, I got the art and whole script part of it I dont see why it should be so imposible to create an rpg game

Indeed for mmos I'll need some experience

Hell I could even make a movie then a game, I'm already a director
